Last night, I scanned through the 88 water stocks listed by I found the 10 water stocks that outperformed S&P 500 in the past 12 months (+10%), had the daily money exchange more than 1 million dollars, and were available from the US stock market. These 10 stocks are: 1. Robbins & Myers Inc. (RBN) (+75%); 2. Companhia de Saneamento Basico do Estado de Sao Paulo (SBS) (+74%); 3. SJW Corp. (SJW) (+50%); 4. Valmont Industries Inc. (VMI) (+38%); 5. Veolia Environnement SA (VE) (+36%); 6. Suez (SZE) (+33%); 7. Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (TMO) (+28%); 8. Pall Corp. (PLL) (+27%); 9. Lindsay Corporation (LNN) (+23%); 10. United Utilities plc (UU) (+20%). These are NOT my recommendations for buy, hold, or sell at this time and in the future.

New Committee on Certification of Stormwater Manufactured BMPs

A group of stormwater professionals proposed a task committee on developing national guidelines for certification of stormwater manufactured BMPs (Best Management Practices). I am glad it was officially approved by ASCE/EWRI last week. I was the proposing Chair. Now I have to start organizing the committee kickoff meeting, to be held in Tampa, Florida during the World Environmental and Water Resources Congress, May 15-19, 2007. We also need to invite additional professionals to join the new committee. Hey, your suggestions and/or comments are welcome here!
